    AlexTrinder96 reacted to Jimmy in Wedding videography advice   
    Oh, i heard, that's why the earlier statements about moving the bride/groom and what not seemed even strange. If you've done wedding shots, you know the pressure. You are fully entitled to your opinion on her work, but I personally think, if you have worked in that industry, you should cut her some slack.

    ...did we watch the same video? I skipped to the last few minutes just to watch her work and to see her footage, which I thought looked great -- I mean it's a wedding, you don't have the luxury of a gaffer truck and crew. She was confident in her instruction, she knew her gear and moved fast to get the maximum number of shots in a short space of time. There was a couple of shots where the background was a bit hot, but mate who cares about the background?!? Her exposure was on her couple! As it should be!

    Your criticism makes me wonder if you've ever shot a wedding before, because it's a high pressure environment where you work with people you don't cast and barely know and you're at the mercy of someone else's schedule and the weather. You're on your feet all day and constantly worried about making sure you've covered everything that's happening and with enough variety for the edit, and keeping tabs on battery life and card space and where you've left your camera bag. If I had a second they'd be busy getting a second angle, not holding a reflector. Not entirely sure how you expect to see any diffusion -- to diffuse full sun for two people walking they'd be under a 20' x 12' at least, and then you'd have to worry about shadows on the ground and the wind blowing the damn thing over.

    As a wedding photographer (who have also shot a few wedding highlight films) I'd be more than happy to work with her on a wedding. Definitely better than some that I've had to work with. My only criticism would be that she's simply not charging enough if she has to work 80 weddings a year, that is an express train to burnout town.

    First impressions of the Kipon Baveyes EF-FX Speedbooster.
    The image looks nice but its to dark to really tell. Will test more tomorrow. Build quality is excellent.

    AF speed is like most adapters, ok but not as fast as native lenses or using the EFs on a Canon. Strangely the 85mm was faster than the 50mm. On all my others adapters it's been the other way around.
    Like I said, its pitch black here. ISO through the roof and with an 85mm at "f1.2" the DOF is very shallow. I have raised the dogs face 5 stops. Long story short, peeping this image is pointless.

    I thought it was the same sensor X-T3? 31 Megapixel would be incredible but I'm not so sure!

    This is sort of an old project, because I kinda gave up on it. It doesn't quite tell the story the way I wanted it to, but I like the way it looks and decided I might as well share it.
    and again, the disclaimer that it's maybe not at all relevant because it's animated, sorry

    Why spend time pining for a Blackmagic P4K when the GH5 does footage like this in 8bit 4K 50p? Not even 10bit!!
    How can it get any better?

    I can feel my passion coming back for the GH5.
    I wonder if he used the SLR Magic Rangefinder on his Kowa 8-Z.
    This is my setup with the Kowa anamorphic. Really nice to focus. Will have to try and get hold of that Nikkor he used though, it clearly adds something dreamy and extra.

    Of course Blackmagic are profitable but at the same time, compared to what the rest of the industry are doing, they are 'pretty much' giving away their products. 
    Pocket4k with Resolve = US$1299
    Adobe Premiere/After Effects/Audition subscription for 2 years = USD$1248
    So after 2 years....yes, BMD have given you a free camera. 😉

    An oldie but a goodie... Takumar 55mm wide open. Frame grab from ML Raw but I shot this in 720p Raw on my 5D3 out of curiosity. I am also messing around with DaVinci Resolve's RGB Mixer in B&W. It seems so intuitive to pull a dramatic B&W look.

    Well thats where prores comes in, a codec that edits like butter. Comparing vs the A7S III, panasonic full frame codecs. But I do agree a lot of users will switch back, because they want ibis and a camera that does all the work for them

    The ISO chart that they showed at that event that's on the Cinema 5D blog is interesting.   Seems as if the middle grey point shifts within the dynamic-range range.  I assume that's just for prores (and maybe raw metadata).
    That would mean that besides simply giving more brightness it would be more of an image manipulation tool.  You choose the ISO depending on whether you want more range in the shadows or in the highlights.  Look at the difference between 1000 and 1250:      Goes from 7.8 stops latitude below and 5.3 stops above to 10 stops below and 2.3 stops above.   A small change in brightness but probably a big change in the look of the image.       Then with gradual changes going down or up from those points.
